It has been reported that NXT superstar Nash Carter from the MSK tag team has been released by WWE.

Carter, who teamed with Wes Lee in NXT as the two-time Tag Team Champions MSK, was apparently released by WWE today, according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful. Carter’s real name is Zachary Green and he also wrestled under the name Zachary Wentz while he was in Impact Wrestling.

Carter has been married to Impact Wrestling’s Kimber Lee. She had been vocal on Twitter talking about how she has been going through hell since October and claimed that her husband Nash was abusing her. She also noted that she thought about taking her own life. She noted that she didn’t share Carter’s abuse because of “hopes of keeping a career.”

On Monday, Kimber Lee shared photos of her face after she claimed Nash hit her in the face.

She followed up with that tweet writing this: “You all wanted the proof. There it is. I’m sorry I backed out but he was telling me lies all weekend to get me to not say anything.”

On Tuesday evening, Kimber Lee also shared a photo of Nash doing a Nazi salute while having an Adolf Hitler-like mustache on his face.

A woman named Marie, who is the wife of Wes Lee (Carter’s tag team partner), noted that Kimber Lee was served divorce papers by Nash Carter yesterday.

Marie noted that Carter was living with Wes and her recently. She also tweeted several other things related to Carter and Kimber Lee’s marriage including a photo at the wedding. As of the time of this posting, Carter has not commented publicly about his release.

MSK won the NXT Tag Team Titles at NXT Stand & Deliver this past Saturday. It was their second time winning the NXT Tag Team Titles.

MSK was advertised for a title match against Grayson Waller & Sanga on next week’s episode of NXT. Obviously, now that Carter has been released by WWE, that match will be off. There is no update on what WWE might do with the match.

WWE has not commented on the release of Nash Carter.
